I'm very interested in the changes in MC 7 too. Both the little things (like a Master Fader in the audio mixer) and the bigger things (like background transcoding/consolidating). I've been so busy recently that I haven't had much time to really read up on all the changes.

W/regards to the Smart Tools, to me they still feel very clunky compared to performing similar actions in FCP's timeline. I'm hoping back and forth between Avid 6.5 and FCP 7 right now and while on FCP I keep performing my Avid keyboard command to switch modes and wondering why the cursor in FCP isn't changing. A split second later I realize what I'm doing and go, "Oh, that's right. In FCP you don't have to switch modes."

I've obviously committed my Avid 'switch mode' keys to muscle memory but it's still not as seamless as FCP's timeline.
